From Mount Holyoke College

At Mount Holyoke — a nonsectarian, private research liberal arts college — students quickly discover their place is at the table: negotiating agreements, redefining policy. And in the lab: interpreting data, engineering solutions. And at center stage: crafting stories, driving image-making industries. The first of the powerful Seven Sister Colleges, Mount Holyoke has always believed in the inherent power of women to innovate and take the reins. When such thought was not just radical it was revolutionary. Today, we welcome all female, transgender, and nonbinary students to experience the formative, lasting power of a Mount Holyoke education. As your future begins to take shape, consider a choice that could really take you places.

Majors

Politics at Mount Holyoke

Politics majors take courses within — and at the intersections of — the fields of political theory, American politics, comparative politics, and international politics. Students learn to grasp the uses and abuses of logic, statistics, and rhetoric; how to frame arguments, present evidence, and address arguments against their positions; and how to master new subjects on their own.
